It's hard to turn a corner in NOLA and not see the iconic fleur de lis everywhere...and I must say, it grew on me. The french/creole influences remind me of my college days there, and I soaked up time with my blood sister and sorority sisters too :) A few favorites from my shopping travels:
L bought these for her "rainy" (aka messy) days of Mardi Gras! Love the pattern.
As a "token" of my appreciation for L's hospitality, she received one of these.
This was a fun addition to my kitchen towel collection.
My house smells amazing as I burn "garden district."
I so enjoyed my time with my family, seeing old friends (miss you K and S!), eating fabulous food (you really should check out The Broken Egg Cafe in Mandeville- yum-o! My sister knows the couple who owns it) and reacquainting myself with heat and humidity! Until next time, N'awlins :)
